Something is wrong with the thermostat

It’s “only” 90°F outside but it’s 80° inside at my computer desk even though the thermostat is set for 76. And I just checked and it’s 80° at the thermostat and the AC still hasn’t come on even though the setting is 4 degrees cooler than the temperature. Something is rotten in Texas, heck with Denmark.

Something else that isn’t working according to spec is my autofill for passwords. I let Google remember all my passwords for sites that require readers be over 18 because they’re a bunch of unrememberable gibberish suggested by either Google or the website, and now I have been dead longer than that. Longer than 18 years that is. I mean seriously this latest update to Windows has messed up a bunch of things, but the thermostat is probably not among them. So I don’t know what the problem is, I mean with the thermostat.

Edit to add: The thermostat has gone out completely for a couple of hours, and my autofill for passwords works some times and not others. I’m going to call the people who installed the AC system tomorrow and have them take a look at it, but I don’t know what I can do about the autofill.

  1. Do you have a “smart” thermostat? If so, is it set for different
    temperatures for different times of the day?
    What do you mean by “gone out completely…”? Did the battery
    Years ago we had a thermostat that had a wide range. It would
    not turn the heat on until the temperature dropped to about five
    degrees below the set point.

      Gone out completely means there is no visible screen on the thermostat. It has different settings for day and night, 76° day and 72° at night between midnight and 0800. It used to turn the AC on when the air temp was 1/2° higher that setpoint. now it turns on at some random temperature higher than the set point. It was 4° but now it’s 2°


  2. Did you check the battery?
